Content

This brand new BA (Hons) Politics degree is designed to look at the three main areas of political study: Political theory, International relations and Comparative politics.

The course will give you a solid grounding in all of the main debates and controversies of the day, as well as developing the skills to investigate, research and explore subjects further.

The course is delivered by a team who have worked hard to establish relationships with potential employers, such as local governments, political parties, lobbying companies, the voluntary sector, parliaments and the trade union movement.

Guest speakers, workshops and masterclasses are built into the course, with an optional placement module in the third year, based in a political environment, that will help you gain invaluable experience in the field.
